    Great work, the textures still look pretty nice :)

    I know you said keep it on topic, but you mentioned performance... Its not really your area i guess, but do you think it might be worth having a setting to turn off animated blocks? So it just changes to a static image (one of the frames, or an altered version, i dont know). I wonder how that would affect performance.

    Well, you can open up the block config and search-and-replace <animated>true<\animated> with <animated>false<\animated>

    Don't worry, thats on topic :) I was just safe guarding against "plz make me new block / texture" requests.

    As @Itmauve said, that's handled in the block config or alternatively in the block editor by remapping the texture and settings.

    kupu i have been using your custom HUD (you know the one with the circles and the more elegant design) and i love it! you might want to post it right here on the new forum so that people can use it!

    [a note: if you do post your (amazing) HUD i recommend changing the build icons to the updated textures for ease and convenience)

    Moraligus I'm glad you like it, but it's really old and outdated. Not enough time to revisit it / fix it i'm afraid, so i won't be posting it here. (it's still on available to download on various sites / blogs though)

    The pixel pack is really very small. I have no idea how RAM much it takes specifically. I suppose we could try find the difference in the free memory displayed in the "tech_info" HUD options. But i have no idea how accurate that would be...

    If you're after pure performance always go with the pixel pack.

    I am curious on how this works. I'm guessing the compression is an OpenGL feature that has similarities with how PNG handles compression? In that case the key would be clustering, am I right?

    No, this is achieved outside of the games compression options. Sorry, I should of made my OP more clear.

    This is all achieved in PNG compression techniques whilst making the texture sheets. Saving on disk space, not occupied VRAM.

    It's something for slower computers. If you can run the game in ultra you don't want this pack. :)
    This is just a compressed version i made as a test.

    This is cool! Tempted to do this with my own. I wonder if the performance gain on a 64x64 resolution pack would be negligible or not. Or if the loss of fidelity would be more apparent due to there being less pixels.

    It would be negligible i think. A 64px pack probably won't go any higher than 400kbs in size, you won't get much more compression out of it without some sizeable loss in fidelity.

    Yo. 'Sup.

    Actually relevant comment: it's amazing how much file size increases with texture size. It makes perfect sense, but is still interesting.

    No more goodies to share, Kupu?

    Loves me some goodies...
    Not yet, sorry!

    I'm currently drawing things up though. Hopefully i'll have something to show in the near future.
